Required. This is an alpha/numeric field for a length of 15 characters. If you are using this to record a Code of Ethics Training, this field is used to uniquely identify the course. For the COEC course, the format should be the year the member took the course followed by the cycle. For example, for cycle 3 courses (2009-2012), the cycle would be C3. So, if a member took the course in 2009, the Course Number would be 2009C3. If a member took the course in 2011, the Course Number would be 2011C3, etc.
For the COEN course, it is the year the new member took the course.
